(SPOT.ph) In the wake of protests against Lady Gaga’s Manila concert, Lady Gaga’s song, "Judas," the alleged Satanic symbolism in Lady Gaga’s videos, and Lady Gaga herself, we found ourselves reevaluating our taste in music. We were suddenly overcome by fear that we had somehow channeled some evil vibes from the Devil’s playlist. Because if God works in mysterious ways, then surely the Devil is adept at injecting his nefarious intentions into pop songs. Our renewed vigilance had us singling out some recent and past tunes sung by Pinoys (and one Fil-Am) that may require prayer rallies, too.
All we can say at this point is this: "Forgive us for we know not what we listen to." These are the 10 songs that have led us into sweet temptation. Alas, we’re afraid it’s too late for us to be saved. But you can all go ahead and keep praying for our damaged souls.
10. "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars
Unholy content: As the saying goes, "Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop." That makes sloth the gateway sin. By promoting laziness, this song becomes the Devil’s soundtrack.
Evil lyrics: Tomorrow I’ll wake up, do some P90X/ Meet a really nice girl/ Have some really nice sex/ And she’s gonna scream out: ’This is Great’ (Oh my God, this is great)/Yeah
Sins glorified: Sloth, pre-marital sex, blasphemy (The entire song is practically a litany of sins wrought from laziness.)
